A LIGHT HEARTED video showing the difference in tact in the use of Anti-Tank weapons! PLEASE READ FULL DESCRIPTION FIRST.....
NOTE: The original Javelin Anti-Tank design is from the US, made by a joint partnership between the Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. The upgraded British version's improved optics being sub-contracted to BAE Systems in the UK, where they are added. The UK version also has a tripod. Both improvements EXTEND the 'stated' range by 500m, a 20% gain on the original system.
The TOW and later Advanced TOW and Top-Down TOW are all-American. The initial Javelin design is also American.
For those who think this is a serious competition between the UK & US, please re-read the first description paragraph...it's about the reactions of the soldiers and the cultural difference, not the systems they are using...
PS) Those who think the UK JAVELIN is still the designation for an obsolete UK MANPAD Anti Air system.....that went out a long time ago.
